Ige inhalant allergy test

GENERAL

Type one, or “classic”, allergy causes redness, swelling, and heat in the body as a result of the elevated blood levels of Immunoglobulin E (IgE). Contrary to popular belief, the symptoms produced by IgE can be subtle and similar to those seen in other conditions. This potential confusion makes diagnostic testing very important in recognizing the offending source. The Advanced IgE Test broadens the scope of tested foods and/or inhalants, including Amoxicillin and Candida.
